The Toro Company began its journey toward improving technical knowledge capture and sharing in 2004. Since then, it has made significant progress in creating a strong culture of knowledge engineering, which has led to a 50 percent improvement in warranty on new products. Toro’s success can be attributed to two main ideas: specialization groups and A3 lessons learned. This presentation—delivered by Toro's Patricia Ranch at APQC’s 2012 knowledge management conference—explores the introduction, structure, maintenance, and continuous improvement of these key tools.
